Keeping all 4 on the floor is something Abbey is still working on. She just gets so excited and wants to jump and kiss everyone she meets! It’s actually really sweet… Loud noises can startle her, but she recovers quickly. Her energy level is pretty high and she is always wanting to play. It can take a while for her to calm down and relax, so she needs regular exercise and mental stimulation. Her typical day consists of lots of play time with her humans as well as some good fetch sessions and outdoor adventures. She’s borderline demanding when it comes to affection, but will eventually do her own thing if ignored.
Abbey is nearly housebroken! There have only been a couple accidents since she’s been in her foster home and she typically paces near the door when she needs to go. She does very well in her crate and doesn’t whine or bark while in there. She just loves to cuddle and at night she gets to sleep with her foster mom, but would be content in her crate or on a dog bed on the floor. Abbey gets along with cats but is also very curious and wants to play with them. She doesn’t get frightened when they hiss at her but she doesn’t do anything in response, either. Well, other than trying to play! Though she hasn’t been around children, we think she would be fine, but quite playful. She is working on her manners when meeting dogs. Male dogs seem to be great buddies for Abbey! But she's still working on being polite to female friends. Because of this, we think Abbey would do best in a home where she is the only dog, or if her new parents can work with her and slowly introduce her to other pups.
This cutie is a very smart and affectionate girl. All she wants is to be pet and she is just the sweetest thing when receiving affection. With a little work on her manners, she’s the perfect pet!
